? >> they are being called to testify in parliament. the big story today is that the political parties are all going to get together, go to parliament and they're all agreed to support a motion that rupert murdoch, his bid to acquire bskyb, the cable operator here, should not go through. that is really rare, ali. it's not legally binding. who knows if he'll care or take notice. the other big story making news here is that the senate commerce committee chairman jay rockefeller is calling for an investigation saying, look, if "news of the world" was hacking u.s. citizens and 9/11 victims. he says this should be taken seriously and there should be an investigation. the big topic on that is how much is it going to affect rupert murdoch's empire in the u.s. as well? >> costing a lot of money in the stock. cost the stock about 14%, more than $7 billion since this really thickened about a week ago. let's talk about this former survivor producer facing expedition to mexico on a charge he murdered his wife. >> right. a judge basically said there was enough evidence to send him back to mexico to face trial, r

and what doesn't get paid. another big story right now, a massive and dangerous heat wave is gripping much of the nation. here's how it looks and feels across the country. take a look at the red quarter. temperatures expected to reach 104 degrees in parts of texas today, in the southeast, temperatures are expected to reach the upper 90s and more than just uncomfortable, it's dangerous. heat has already claimed the life of at least one person in illinois and adding to that, the heat is causing drought conditions in the deep south to intensify. also this morning, hundreds of thousands still without power in the chicago area after strong thunderstorms rolled through. officials warn the power there might not be back on until saturday. let's go live to rob marciano outdoors this morning, silly rob, in atlanta's piedmont park. sun still not up, so it's still probably manageable there. but a lot of the south waking up this morning to 80 degrees overnight or higher. >> yeah. that's the thing. really hasn't cooled down much overnight, ali. even if you're out before the sun comes up you're still fee
to put things in perspective, the federal government's twice as big as it was ten years ago. right now. twice as big. so everybody out there that's having to live within a budget, making the hard choices in our economy today, know that if you've grown something twice in ten years, you obviously can make some significant cuts in it without having any negative effect. >> senator coburn, let's talk about your role in the gang of six. is it correct, i mean, you bolted from the group. it was widely reported a couple of months ago. returned recently when the gang agreed to cut an additional 100-plus billion dollars from entitlement health care programs. and are you rock solid behind this new plan? >> you know, i'm rock solid behind my plan. my plan isn't going to happen. so i'm rock solid behind the plan that gets us on the way and this one does. >> your plan being the $9 trillion? >> yeah. >> the whole thing, it appears to be dependent upon rewriting the tax code. so how do we do that? how do we make all these other changes? how do we avert this, you no kn potential default in 13 days and h
no sizable progress to report on moving forward on a big deficit reduction plan that includes massive spending cuts, tax reform and entitlement reform, tax increases. so you can see here the clock is ticking and the end game here still very unclear. >> this thing just keeps on developing and you hear hopefulness and then schedules. you will keep us posted when you hear there's actually some kind of timeline we have to figure out whether we are going to have money to pay our bills on august 3rd or not. >> after two days of explosive hearings in the uk phone hacking scandal, relatives of 9/11 victims in the u.s. are now saying they will be meeting with attorney general eric holder soon. they asked for the meeting one-on-one since the fbi started investigating allegations that "news of the world" hacked the phones of survivors, victims and their families. the meeting has yet yet been set. >>> rupert murdoch is back in the united states. he and his wife returned to their new york home yesterday. there is a lot on rupert murdoch's plate. news corp. is facing an fbi investigation and at lea
not -- >> if that's the case you want to make, that's a big different case to make. but this is a christian facility. and they take medicaid patients. not necessarily for this procedure or treatment or whatever you call it. >> there's no evidence they were using medicaid payments for reparative therapy. >> she should be asked about this theory. she's a candidate for president. one out of ten americans is gay. she should be asked if she wants to lead a country where at least 10% of us are gay or lesbian, does she believe in this crack pot, bigoted theory that somehow there's something to be repaired in our brothers and sisters and sons and daughters who happen to be born gay? >> we'll have more with paul and ari after the break. we'll talk about the debt showdown. polls numbers the president used in support of his policies. frachkly the president's numbers simply don't add up. we'll show you that. let us know what you think. we're on facebook. follow me on twitter @ anderson cooper. later thousands of protestors in cairo's tahrir square. we'll tell you why they're happening now. but i did. they said
, this backup plan could be left as the last option standing. but the big question is always, wolf, will it pass the house? can it pass the house? and this seems to be another example of just how divided the republican party is on this issue. >> yeah, it's a huge, huge division right now. going forward, this debate, we'll see what happens. kate, thanks very much. let's check in with jack right now. he's got the "cafferty file." >> despite that nasty game of chicken going on in washington over raising the debt ceiling. congressional leaders in both parties pretty much agree that doing it is going to be necessary. the argument is over what else goes into the bill that's tying them up and bringing the country dangerously close to defaulting on some of our loans. according to a new poll, 40% do not want the debt ceiling raised and they want their members of congress to vote against any measures that raise it. only 22% want their lawmakers to vote for raising the debt ceiling. and more than 1/3 of americans say they're just not sure. when asked which is a greater concern, 51% say raising the debt cei
. this is a big band-aid on a much more serious problem. >> this isn't about jobs today. this is about where we're going to be in 10 or 15 years, are we going to run off a cliff? are we going to sort of have a gradual adjustment or wait till the last second and have markets force us? they're not forcing us to do this. our interest rates are low. that's not the problem. but we see it coming eventually. so this is not going to help, although it will encourage wall street. it will encourage credit a bit because it will provide a bit of calm finally in the markets over this. >> do you think that any of that -- any of the plans you see right now, when you look at them, do you say any of this will create jobs? the warning i'm hearing about so many of them is in the short-term, this is possibly going to slow things down even more? >> yeah, i'd say they're not creating jobs now. but they're taking some very hard problems and, by gosh f they actually do some of the tax reform, it's going to make a big difference over the longer term. it really is going to be a help for the economy. >> jeanne, if they re

. and i guess, obviously, because it's a country of immigrants, it becomes this big thing. but from your perspective, what would you do? how would you fix things? >> that's a loaded question. it's a big question too. and i think there's so much misinformation out there, and i will immediately disclaim that i am not the expert in this field. although i am pretty literate. i'm pretty literate in this particular issue, because of people that are in my life and my mentors and people that i surround myself, because i really want to understand what the problem is. the majority of latinos in america are american, and i think that we forget that we are trying to categorize every mexican or every mexican american as illegal or undocumented, and that is just not true. nobody wants illegal immigration. what happened in arizona, i think, created a dialogue that we needed to have. and for immigration, it's been on the administration -- on the agenda for the past three administrations. so people like to blame obama and they're going to blame a lot of people for it -- >> well, there's this huge expecta
commitment to big government. what they would like to see is the government sweated down. that's the point they've been trying to make. and there are honest differences and people have a very different view of what kind of society we ought to live in. >> but at a certain point, david, when there was a big deal on the table, and if as you say the president could have brought nancy pelosi along, and i agree with you i think he could have, the republicans would have gotten a great deficit reduction deal if they hadn't committed to the no tax pledge, right? >> but gloria, asking any party to commit to a $1 trillion of tax increases is an awful big lift for a party that is all along stood for lower taxes. and when they also feel a lot of these cuts are going to turn out to be illusory. their experience in the past they sign onto the bargains and they feel the democrats eventually wind up getting what they wanted and what they were promised never materializes. >> but there's a big difference between that and nothing. you know? a big difference. [ overlapping speakers ] >> where do you see the mi
. the personalities here. there is a collapse here. i think what is important in the big picture is it was groundhog's day over the collapse although yesterday was a very dramatic day. that is tax increases. when you heard the speaker saying that the president had moved the goal post, he was talking about an insistence on $400 billion in tax increases that he said essentially the white house put there on the table at the last minute. then you heard from president obama yesterday, a very frustrated president obama, that he did not understand why the speaker was walking away from really what the white house sees as a sweet deal considering how much it has wrinkled the rank and file. you heard the president say he felt like he had been left at the altar by speaker boehner. let's listen to both sides. >> i just got a call about a half hour ago from the speaker himself. can they say yes to anything? we have now put forward a package that would significantly cut deficits and debt. it would be the biggest debt reduction package we have seen in a long time. it is hard to understand why speaker boehner would

targeted, it's basically not a big deal, now he's realized what a catastrophic error of judgment that was because the woman that's replaced him on this inquiry, sue acres, is saying up to 4,000 people could have been targeted by the newspapers. >> what about the implications that this is not just the now defunct "news of the world," but other papers? >> yeah. i think this is really significant and really bad news for news international. it's no longer just confined to "news of the world," the paper that they closed down, realizing it had become toxic as a brand. it's now spread to "the sun" and "sunday times." both so far have not been shown to have used phone hacking, but they have been shown to use what, at best, slightly underhand techniques, at worst illegal activities to get information.

't default and if we did it's not a big problem. they're wrong. you also have a big number of democrats and much larger number who say it doesn't matter if we spend the nation into bankruptcy. we won't go bankrupt. they're wrong. and that's even worse because there are more of them who believe that than the small number of republicans who are willing to countenance the fall. >> let me ask you something. >> let me be clear. these polls, can i just be clear about something? this is washington equivalent. polls are not equivalent. the public blames the congressional republicans much more than the president, all right? that's a fact that cannot be disputed. we should not get off with the facts are. it's not a pox on both the house. it's overwhelmingly the public blames the congressional republicans. >> james, as somebody who's made his living with polls you know as well as i do that there's not only one poll in town. there's a bunch of them. >> three of them. you can look at all three. [ overlapping speakers ] >> his numbers have been dropping. the president is not -- nobody's faring well i
resigned a and then the dow jones resigned. and just yesterday, a big apology. he met with the family of a murdered teenager saying he's sorry that his journalists hacked her phone. he apologizes in print, as well, promising reareds that he will make big changes in the company. >>> and now to this side of the pond. the u.s. attorney general orders the fbi to look into whether rupert murdock's employees broke any u.s. laws. let's get straight to susan candiotti. rupert murdock appears before the parliament in just three days to testify. how hot is that seat there and here? >> well, i think it's safe to say that seat will be sizzling. by all accounts, his questioning before parliament can be spec spectacular. he took out full page ads mostly his own, but big block letters saying we are sorry. he signed the ad. his words he's poll gazing for wrongdoing causing hurt and not acting faster to sort things out. so par two top executives are taking the fall, his top editor, rebekah brooks, plur dock has described her as like a daughter to him. she's been in charge of his tabloid news of the wo
all do that. nationwide, you can see why where that big focus is. we're doing a little better in places across the southwest. albuquerque is looking at 88. 91 in denver. that's hot if you're exerting yourself in the peak of the heat of the day. the other thing to mention especially in the peak of the heat of the day is that the air quality and many of these cities is very poor too. you don't want to go outside for that reason either. we have been calling this a heat dome. what really is that. basically we have got this dome of high pressure that is stacked way up, thousands of feet, even miles up into the atmosphere, where we have high pressure. and what happens when you have a high pressure system, you think high and dry, sunny and beautiful, right? but high pressure has descending air in it. when it descends, it compresses and heats up. when you're near the center of the dome or the center of the high, it stays very, very warm and you're seeing the worst of it. that's why we have been seeing hotter temperatures in new york city than what you've been seeing in atlanta, georgi
perception losing less. because they keep talking about doing the big deal. so the public is blaming the white house less and blaming republicans and congress. but that doesn't get anybody anywhere. they still have to figure out a package. we're no closer at this moment. >> are all the problems we had last week, week before, yesterday, four hours ago, we still have all those problems? we're just talking about another maneuver and push it down to road. >> what's fascinating is i continue to hear these outsiders who don't work in washington describe this as washington as it works. there's always a mess in washington and they come together at the end. it's a normal washington process. and i'm talking to a lot of old washington hands who have been here for decades and they are calling this one as abnormal washington process. the difference with this one is that there are these new freshmen in the house of representatives that don't care about getting re-elected. you cannot sweeten this deal. you cannot win them over by adding something to the vote, really. and they don't know how this is
, big or small, long term or short, simply is not going to make it through the house of representatives. you may think this is business as usual in washington. two sides pushing a crisis to the brink in order to get the best possible deal for their side. but jessica yellin is reporting that some of her sources are telling her that this is anything but a normal crisis. she joins us now. jessica, thanks. your sources are saying this is becoming an abnormal crisis. what happened today? >> reporter: well, there was a lot of process, sanjay. and a lot of discussion and still no breakthrough is the bottom line. we are less than two days away from the president's self-imposed deadline for a deal and still there is no deal. some on capitol hill, some of even the president's allies are saying this is now in their view time to cut bait and stop going for this big deficit reductions package they've been talking about and just find the easiest path forward to get the debt ceiling raised and worry about deficit reductions at another time. >> you know, it seemed like there was some enthusiasm and som
from new york. two big stories this morning, the final space shuttle landing and dozens of people here in the united states believed to be dead because of this incredible heat wave. >>> let's start with the shuttle. we are now less than one hour away from the final space shuttle landing. just in the last half-hour, we got a go for landing from nasa. the deorbit burn took place in the last couple of minutes. in the burn, the shuttle's engines are fired to help it slow down before it hits the atmosphere. in less than 30 minutes the shuttle and crew will start to feel the effects of the atmosphere. they'll be about 80 miles above the earth at that point. as the shuttle comes through the atmosphere, it heats up to about 5,000 degrees on the outside. when it breaks through the atmosphere, many of the folks in florida will hear those famous son iic booms. about five minutes before the landing, the commander will take manual control of the shuttle and pilot it to the grounds. when the orbiter hits the runway, it will be going 220 miles an hour. the shuttle will land for the last time ever at
and taking on the big issues. and that he called on the group to take on this challenge and then called the meeting to an end. no matter how you read that, it's clearly an increase in tensions on day three of these debt negotiations with no sign of real progress with the clock ticking. and i do have it confirmed that this president really did say with my presidency at stake i will not yield on this issue. >> you know, there have been some reports and i think the "wall street journal" did an editorial about this suggesting this has all been kind of part of president obama's plan, that he's been very kind of calculating in the way he's gone about these talks, intimating or letting the republicans talk about spending cuts and then only later on really being aggressive and pressing for revenue razors, for tax increases down the road. how does the white house respond to that? is there any truth to that from the white house perspective? >> reporter: if this were part of a plan he'd have a deal by now. no president wants this kind of debt threat hanging over their head. he cannot benefit from
wendy's own romantic past raised some eyebrows including a former marriage and then big reports of wendy's sometimes strained relationship with murdoch's other children. but as the pie man found, nothing comes between the slapdown sister and her mister. stan grant, cnn, beijing. >> and that is it for "in the arena." we'll be back next week. pierce morgan is ahead. but first -- we're following up on important breaking news tonight. a 32-year-old norwegian man is in custody after today's deadly twin attacks in norway. the death toll is now 17. seven were killed in oslo where a bomb blasted through the center. outside the capital, a gunman opened fire on a political meeting of young people killing ten there. the attacks with definitely linked. 90 people are hospitalized with injuries in oslo. no word yet on a motive for the attacks. and the other huge story in washington, debt talks and broken down. late this afternoon house speaker john boehner walked out of negotiations with president obama saying the two could not connect because of their difference visions for country. presiden
't possibly have happened from the blast. but it was such a big explosion, brooke, that most people's recollection of it is pretty shaken. the police say they're trying to get bomb experts down there on the scene as quickly as possible to deal with that forensic evidence. because the m.o. they believe will help point to what kind of an organization could've triggered this attack. but at the moment, we've heard many conflicting reports. some eyewitnesss say they believe that bomb could've actually been inside the lobby of the building where the prime minister's office was. but all still incredibly unclear at the moment, brooke. >> still, nima, still no one coming forward claiming responsibility for this? >> not at the moment. we've seen a lot of chatter on a lot of the pro-jihad forums. you can appreciate they see this as reason to celebrate. many are saying this was in revenge for the bin laden killing. but no one actually definitively claiming responsibility. a lot of the intelligence sources i've been speaking to say they believe this is the kind of attack that something like al q
themselves as kind of big part actors because they're being beamed to the worldment and wherever you have seen the tril trials by television now involving notorious people, the results normally got wrong way to public opinion. and create -- >> i don't know what you just said. >> take o.j. simpson case. >> goes the wrong way to public opinion. what does that mean? >> that means that public opinion had been driven, i think, by the saturation and coverage on television and all the commentary so that most people were directed to believe and, you know, i'm sure you wouldn't deny the fact you were directly able to think this that this woman killed her child. >> actually, i have a lot more respect for my viewers. i think they can make up their own minds. and also it's funny that you would say that. because in our constitution, i guess you can compare it to the legislative history, the legislative minutes when laws are enacted in our country. someone is taking down everything that's being said as laws are passed by congress. we had something similar to that when the constitution was written. and
you that you could save hundreds! yeah, that'll certainly stick with me. we'll take it. go, big money! i mean, go. it's your break, honey. same coverage, more savings. now, that's progressive. call or click today. a network of possibilities. in here, the planned combination of at&t and t-mobile would deliver our next generation mobile broadband experience to 55 million more americans, many in small towns and rural communities, giving them a new choice. we'll deliver better service, with thousands of new cell sites... for greater access to all the things you want, whenever you want them. it's the at&t network... and what's possible in here is almost impossible to say. and i count on social security. here's what i'm not... a pushover. right now, some in washington want to make a deal cutting the social security and medicare benefits we worked for. with billions in waste and loopholes, how could they look at us? maybe we seem like an easy target... until you realize... there are 50 million of us. [ female announcer ] tell the politicians: cut waste and loopholes, not our benefits. with n
. our country is not succeeding because our military is too big. people call it the military and then it's hands off. it's not military. it's defense contractors. most of our weaponry is ridiculous. it's not -- it's for fighting the russians in 1978. we don't need that. what would make this country stronger is economics. that's where the future is. that's what makes a country strong. if you're not strong economically you are not -- >> piers: that's where america is increasingly weak. >> this is one reason. we could solve this debt deficit problem if we would do two simple things. tax the rich like they used to be taxed. not a hell of a lot more, just like they were under clinton and bring the troops home. not just from iraq and afghanistan, but we have half a million troops in bases across the world. >> piers: how many do the chinese have? >> none. they don't have troops. because they know this is not the way you achieve agemny in this world. >> piers: i did a documentary in shanghai recently. fascinating time to be out there. this dynamism that you felt along the city. one frosting youn
this is not a big deal? $800 million of aids has been suspended. >> both sides are working together on a number of things and pakistan is not happy with the pace of delivery of assistance. americans are not happy with the pace of delivery of certain deliverables from pakistan. it happens sometimes. right now because pakistan is a fledgling democracy and everything that happens there hits the media and there's an american domestic political context in which everything becomes an issue because of the way people react to your administration. this has become -- >> the reaction in pakistan to the u.s. decision to suspend at least for now $800 million in promised aid, a spokesman for the pakistani military saying in the past, we have not been dependent -- we have not been dependent on any external support for these operations. and they will. >> in 1999 there was no aid relationship. even though the u.s. and pakistan continued to work together albeit in a limited manner. it's not a good idea. it insults the people of pakistan. >> $800 million is a lot of money that can be used to build schools here in
't be a big deal. i'll give you a few seconds to look them in the eye and say, you're wrong. >> yeah, i think you're wrong. now, of course, i don't know for sure. this is unprecedented but there is a $23 billion social security payment due on august 3rd that is not at all clear that there will be enough cash in the treasury to make that payment. so i think david is right. why would you want to take that chance? tp doesn't make sense. not for the social security recipients or for the economy or entire global financial system. >> david walker, the president meets with speaker boehner over the weekend and they are clearly not making any tangible progress. the house will go forward this week and senate will most likely vote on a balanced budget amendment and some other things that simply, to be honest, can't pass or even if they did pass the president would veto. they will move to the mcconnell plan and convince the republicans that they have your vote. do those votes undermine confidence in the market in a deal that might be reached? >> well, i think the markets know that those are not going to
're alive. >> what's that? >> you can confirm you're alive? >> i'm alive, yes. i think the big confirmation for this month is i didn't die and i didn't get married. it's a one-two shot. >> what is it like when you read about your own death on twitter? i haven't had that experience yet. did you find it funny? was it a bit disconcerting? >> my response was, you know, it happened to mark twain so i quoted mark twain's comment, that rumors of his death demise were greatly exaggerated. >> let's move back to when you were last in my studio. because we had -- >> it was only yesterday. >> it was a great interview. crystal was with you and everything seemed absolutely happy. there seemed no reason why this wasn't going to be a great hollywood wedding. you very kindly invited me. i was looking forward to it and everything else. what happened? that's what everybody wants to know. the first television interview you've given. what went wrong? >> well, you know, that is the number one question. and i don't have an answer for it. i really don't know what happened. i think that in time, the rest of the sto
